    Kristen, I am SO PROUD OF YOU! You are an absolutely amazing woman. God has really gifted you to give out of your “overflow” to help others. Cool name & ideas, by the way. Not sure we’ll be able to make it (due to location), but thanks for including me on the info. God is using you in a real, tangible way.
    Love, Dana
